HOW TO CARE FOR SILVER?
Silver is poorly resistant to scratches and darkens over time, losing its natural shine. Fortunately, it's easy to remedy. Spray it with glass cleaner and scrub with a soft brush (children's toothbrush), then polish with a cotton cloth.
You will restore silver to its former glow by using ... ketchup! Soak your favorite silver jewelry in it for a few minutes, then rinse and dry it thoroughly. The effect will surprise you!
A thick paste prepared with 1/4 cup of baking soda and two tablespoons of water will also help remove stubborn dirt. Apply it on a soft sponge and gently scrub the surface of the jewelry. Wash it in warm water and wipe it with a dry cloth. Ready!
